Licensed Psychologist in Pennsylvania and New York states.
I have over 20 years of experience helping people get relief of symptoms and find ways to lead fuller and richer lives. I recently relocated to Port Washington and opened a private practice. Prior to relocating, I worked as a staff psychologist at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry. I was one of the founders of the psychological services at Penn’s NIH Center of Excellence for Women’s Health, which later became the Penn Center for Women’s Behavioral Wellness. In addition, I was a full-time staff psychologist at the Penn Out-patient Psychiatry Center, as well as a therapist in NIMH funded research trials at the Center for Psychotherapy Research. I also have experience with and a strong interest in helping people with chronic illness and particularly coping with the difficulties associated with organ transplantation. I was trained primarily in psychodynamic psychotherapy. Over the years, my practice has also been influenced by other treatment modalities. I tailor my work to the individual needs as seem appropriate. I have extensive training and experience in brief and long-term psychotherapy approaches serving a very diverse population with a broad range of psychological problems.
